« on: April 04, 2016, 10:27:59 AM »

 Cortana, Microsoft virtual voice assistant is now 2, since it's lauch on April 2nd last year. It's been helpful in several means and areas of life, "she's" populaly know for predicting outcome on macthes.

Well with the added age, she now has new features. Which include: being able to keep Android users up-to-date about their notifications across various devices.

According to phonearena they explained like this: "According to Microsoft, Cortana will soon allow users to track notifications across Android devices and Cortana will also be able to help you respond to SMS messages from your PC as well. It sounds kind of like what you could do now with Pushbullet, but built directly into Windows. In general, Cortana could be getting more functionality with third-party apps because Microsoft will be releasing new APIs to let developers create commands.

The APIs and new Cortana functionality will be coming with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update which is due out this summer. In the meantime, if you want to be able to get Android notifications on your PC and respond to SMS, you can look into Pushbullet."

Helping to send texts for you from your PC. Awesome!

Other new features include the Cortana Collection, which will appear in the Windows Store. This is a series of apps recommended by the virtual personal assistant.

And also in addition, Cortana will now make suggestions during the course of a day. She will offer to phone in a lunch order for you, or arrange a cab or other form of transportation.

Cool right? Moving on!

We also have the other vitual voice assistant that are much older and smarter than the Cortana though. That is Apple - Siri, and Google's - Google now. According to research people offen prefer the two to Cortana, in anyway, hey, Cortana is just 2 and is doing awesome stuff, hope for a better future is all I can say.

Feel free to leave a comment telling us which you would prefer, between the porpular Vitual Voice Assistant.
